Fun Tea Party RecipesA few suggestions to make your your own tea party treats.
Lemon Curd is a traditional and popular accompaniment with warm scones when serving a British-style afternoon tea. But both are handy toppings to incorporate in other tea party recipes. Lemon Curd also makes a decadent filling between layers of cake.
